Ah, the keto coffee. The concept that changed the entire coffee market in a matter of months. So what is a keto coffee anyways? Simply put, keto coffee is a style of coffee drank by keto diet enthusiasts that normally includes a high content of healthy fats. The specific type of fat that most people look for are Medium Chain Triglycerides, or MCT's for short. It is thought that MCT's can promote weight loss by reducing body fat and helping your gut health due to its unique chemical properties. Furthermore, studies have shown MCT's can be converted into ketones in your body. Ketones - and we're completely boiling it down here - are a compound within your body that helps target fat as fuel, i.e. increase fat burn. See the appeal?
Mixing It Up - Fit & Focused Keto Coffee
Now, we at Fit and Focused actually do not put MCT powder or MCT oil in our coffee, but rather we create our brew as a zero-calorie keto oriented platform. We do this by taking pure organic arabica coffee and infusing it with antioxidants and metabolism boosting properties. This acts as a baseline for the addition of any of your keto oils, MCT creamers, mineral packs, or natural sweeteners. This way, no matter your weight loss, fitness, or diet methods, our coffee will always help to augment your style.
Believe it or not, Fit and Focused Ground Fat Burning Colombian Roast Coffee and Fat Burning Coffee K Cup Pods are still keto coffees, but for non-MCT reasons. Green Tea Extract has been shown to improve the fat burning abilities in humans, particularly in the abdominal area, therefore helping the body achieve a ketogenic state.
Personally, we like our Green Tea Extract infusion better, as you can have our keto coffee during your intermittent fasting routine without worrying about caloric content, which you'll definitely find in MCT oils. That's not to say the MCT keto creamers and MCT coffees are wrong. If you're not worried about intermittent fasting or low calorie content, then combining the two methods would be the best of both worlds in terms of mental sharpness and fat loss. That is why we've created the perfect Fit and Focused Keto Coffee recipe. Read on!
Simple Fat Burning Keto Coffee Recipe
Step 1 - This is the calorie burning, metabolism boosting, "get your body ketosis ready" step
Brew your Fit and Focused Fat Burning Coffee grounds or keto friendly Fat Burning Colombian Roast Pods using any method necessary (i.e. French Press, Aeropress, Drip Coffee, Keurig for the Fat Burning K Cups, just about anything). We recommend 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds per one 6 ounce cup of water.
Step 2 - Add your desired amount of keto creamer
After you pour yourself a cup of coffee, its time to add a keto creamer. Check out the 14 best keto creamers as posted on delish.com. Keep in mind that serving sizes from company to company vary, so pay attention to the amount of total healthy MCT fats you want in your coffee. If you have a milk frother, we definitely recommend using it at this point. It will give your coffee an unbeatable light and well-mixed consistency like it's straight from the barista.
Step 3 - Cacao
Now for the final touches. Not only does cacao taste amazing, but its health properties are off the charts. Cacao is the parent of our best friend, chocolate, and is harvested from cacao trees in the upper Amazon basin. Per our favorite resource, WebMD, Cacao can help aid in proper digestion while also lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow to the brain and heart. Needless to say, this is an excellent addition to our Fat Burning Colombian Roast. Aim for the Organic Cacao power and sprinkle about 1/2 tablespoon onto the top of your coffee.
Step 4 - The final garnish of Cinnamon
Cinnamon really is the perfect spice. It goes with just about everything, and it's antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties are stellar. Add a pinch to the top for your coffee's final touch.
MCT Keto Creamer, Cacao, Cinnamon, and Organic Colombian roast coffee infused with Green Tea Extract. Most likely the best keto coffee recipe in the world if you asked us.
